Why Tankardstown House is one of the best wedding Venue?

Tankardstown House is one of the premier wedding venue in Ireland with many weddings organised every year. From a small intimate wedding to a big party.

So you’re planning your wedding? Exciting times! And there’s never been a more exciting place or time to be planning a wedding than Ireland. When I started over ten years ago, weddings in Ireland were quite different – much more formal and much less personal, it was very difficult to be creative. Since then the rules have been rewritten, couples now come first, and weddings have become reflections of personal style. As a couple, you’re planning the best party you’ll probably ever have, so it’s important that you find the very best place in which to celebrate. After receiving hundreds of requests for help finding the perfect property, I felt the time was right to curate my own personal recommendations for the best places to celebrate. I travelled the length and breadth of Ireland visiting beautiful places and meeting wonderful people.
